Partnering With Local Businesses To Connect Resources With Those In Need

SAN DIEGO - eTradeWire -- On Thursday, July 2nd, the Rock Church, San Marcos campus in collaboration with the Rock's Provision Group, is hosting a community food, diaper and supplies distribution to help connect resources with those that have found themselves in an unexpected place of need during the COVID-19 crisis. The event is free and open to the community.

According to the San Diego Food Bank, out of San Diego County's 3.2 million residents, 450,000 people face food insecurity every day. With the onset of COVID-19, there is even more of a crisis. Not all San Diegians have access to obtain groceries at local organizations like the San Diego Food Bank. In understanding how this crisis impacts the community,  providing alternate means to obtain food and other grocery necessities is a critical need for San Diegians.

Every first and third Thursday of the month, at the Rock Church San Marcos campus the community is invited to get free food, groceries and supplies. The drive-thru set-up is designed for easy pick up. The distribution of groceries and supplies begins at 12p.m. and ends when supplies run out for the day.

Since the birth of this project on April 3rd, an average of 177 individuals have come through on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month, equating to over 466 households receiving much needed groceries and household supplies.

Einstein Bagels in Oceanside, one of the food contributors shares,  "It's good to know the bagels are being used and not being wasted. It's good to know that they're being used for a good cause. It's good for the community."

The Provision Group, along with the Rock Church, are especially appreciative to the local businesses that have supported and donated to this local effort including North County Food Bank, Einstein Bagels in Oceanside, La Provence Bakery in San Marcos, Stater Bros. of San Marcos, WinCo. Foods San Marcos, Albertsons San Marcos for grocery bags and Andre Nantkes and A.B. Jones & Co.
